Mrs. Sophia Martelly, the First Lady of the Republic of Haiti, learned yesterday morning that a young woman named Sheila Médély gave birth to quintuplets at the Hospital of Cayes-Jacmel. She congratulates the mother and her husband M. Clément Numa while regretting that the only boy is born dead and that one of four daughters died.
The First Lady believes that this family deserves special attention from the structures of social protection and assistance of the State. Personally, the First Lady has decided to offer an amount of fifty thousand (50,000) gourds to the family. This amount is sent to the attention of Senator Edo Zenny.
"The instinct of solidarity is one of the deepest haitian values, which our society has no right to dispose," said the First Lady, who welcome the newborn.
